AFKLMP Cargo welcomes Airflo and Tiger Freight to its SAF programme

SustainabilityNov - 03, 2021
As the COP26 summit brings together world leaders in Glasgow to tackle climate change, it should be noted that Air France KLM Martinair Cargo were among the first airlines to launch a Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) programme for cargo in December 2020. Today we are proud to welcome Airflo and Tiger Freight to our SAF programme. By joining, Airflo and Tiger Freight will reduce the carbon emissions that they produce shipping flowers and perishables. This partnership will make it possible to use sustainable aviation fuel on AFKLMP Cargo flights from Kenya and Zimbabwe carrying Airflo´s and Tiger Freight´s fresh agricultural and horticultural products.

At this year´s International Floriculture Trade Fair (IFTF) in the Netherlands (3-5 November), GertJan Roelands, Senior Vice President Sales & Distribution Air France KLM Martinair Cargo, invited the CEO of Airflo and Tiger Freight, Andrew Pattenden, to sign an agreement that includes a fixed annual investment from Airflo and Tiger Freight. This will enable us to further expand our development and procurement of SAF. Airflo´s and Tiger Freight´s contribution will be used to cover the difference in price between conventional aircraft fuel and SAF. The International Floriculture Trade Fair (IFTF) at Vijfhuizen in the Netherlands is the world´s most prestigious trade fair for international flower growers and buyers.
